Bridge a Life exists to “Provide Christ-centered hope for children with relational trauma through awareness and family support.”
We understand that some families encounter financial hurdles when navigating the adoption process. In addition to other support programs, Bridge a Life desires to help families meet their financial obligations regarding adoption.
The Beatrice Fund Adoption Assistance Grant is available to any 12th Circuit Florida resident (Sarasota, Manatee, and DeSoto Counties) who has an approved and current home study from a licensed and accredited adoption agency. International and domestic adoptions will be considered. Grants are awarded regardless of race, age, or marital status. Applicants must be professing Christians who are members in good standing with a local church community. Due to limited funding, we cannot guarantee all qualified applicants will receive a grant.
Bridge a Life does not fully fund adoptions but can assist with a small portion of the expenses. Adoption assistance amounts range from $250-1,500. Funds will be awarded directly to your adoption agency on your behalf.
We understand that some families encounter financial hurdles when caring for children who have relational trauma. In addition to other support programs, Bridge a Life desires to help families meet their financial obligations regarding foster care, adoption, and kinship care.
Bridge a Life is interested in partnering with families and developing strategic partnerships within our community. Therefore, it is not our intention to fully-fund financial requests. Rather, we’d like to discuss what portion of a product or service the family can contribute, and network with businesses and agencies to cost-share and develop strategic partnerships that are sustainable for future similar requests. Financial assistance amounts range from $50-1,000. Funds will be distributed directly to your service provider on your behalf.
